That on the pic shown above isn't a bus stop. That would be insane on a highway where everyone is doing 70mph. It's somewhere to park when your car breaks down

Its not insane completely, there is a bus lane on the M4 motorway over here that is outside the fastest lane of traffic!!



They've closed it temporarily now, but for the last 10 years its been there...

I think what you're referring to is a 'lay by' (I think thats the expression, mojo can help hopefully)

it was outside a shopping mall, I suppose he has some emergency shopping to do, and no it wasn't a stop, the stop is a few feet ahead
